Linux CEO Brings Open Web Services for Online Dating to Social Networking

Filed under
Humor

Kevin Carmony, recently-resigned CEO for desktop Linux vendor Linspire, today unveiled his new venture, Dating DNA, LLC (www.datingdna.com). Dating DNA provides free and open Web Services which bring 1-click compatibility scoring and other sophisticated dating features to Social Networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Craigslist, as well as to Internet devices such as Apple's iPhone and the Chumby web appliance (www.chumby.com).

"Online dating continues to move dramatically away from traditional dating sites such as Match.com and eHarmony," said Carmony. "Each day, more and more people are using Social Networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, Craigslist, and others, as a means of meeting new people to date. Utilizing these sites is free and provides a far more natural way of meeting people than traditional dating sites of the past. Dating DNA is the first company to capitalize on this trend, by bringing the convenience of matching tools from traditional dating sites to these new Social Networking avenues, something which has been sorely missing."

Carmony believes that just like everyone's genetic DNA is different, so too is everyone's "dating DNA."

It's just a name...

"Dating DNA" is just a catchy name, sort of like Turbo Linux. Does it really have a turbo charged engine inside? Wink

Fact: People ARE using Social Networking sites (and the net in general) to meet people to date.

All Dating DNA tries to do is get you past all those basic introduction questions quickly. For example, I wouldn't date a smoker. I wouldn't date someone who is married. I wouldn't date someone who is living at home with their parents. etc.

This is all addressed in the FAQs on our site: http://www.datingdna.com/?a=faq

Proving once again that people (in huge massive numbers) ARE getting dumber by the day, and that the human species is doomed.

Tunir 0.13 is released and one year of development

I have started Tunir on Jan 12 2015, means it got more than one year of development history. At the beginning it was just a project to help me out with Fedora Cloud image testing. But it grew to a point where it is being used as the Autocloud backend to test Fedora Cloud, and Vagrant images. We will soon start testing the Fedora AMI(s) too using the same. Within this one year, there were total 7 contributors to the project. In total we are around 1k lines of Python code. I am personally using Tunir for various other projects too. One funny thing from the code commits timings, no commit on Sundays :) Read more

Andy Rubin Unleashed Android on the World. Now Watch Him Do the Same With AI

Now that Rubin had shepherded smartphones from concept to phenomenon, they no longer held much interest. As an engineering problem, they had been solved. Sure, entrepreneurs kept launching new apps, but for someone who considered engineering an art, that was like adding a few brushstrokes atop layers of dried paint. Rubin wanted to touch canvas again—and he could see a fresh one unfurling in front of him. Read more

Building a culture of more pluggable open source

If there is one word that often percolates conversations hailing the benefits of open source, it is choice. We often celebrate many of the 800+ Linux distributions, the countless desktops, applications, frameworks, and more. Choice, it would seem, is a good thing. Interestingly, choice is also an emotive thing. Read more

A new frontier for open source: Linux will power our robotic future

"You know, with windows versus Linux, Windows got there first by a long shot. It was the entrenched party. So Linux is the scrappy upstart. In the case of robotics, open source got there first. The community grew up doing things the open source way. There was actually a period in the mid-2000s where Microsoft put a lot of effort into its Windows-based Robotics Developer Studio. It had really good features, but it's never taken off. So yeah, I think robotics are proving to be a different situation than what happened with personal computing." Long live Linux. Long live ROS. Long live open source. Read more
